In a press release provided to NewsOne, the company announced that a hundred websites have been launched to represent low-income churches and non-profits in underserved communities since their inception last month. This online presence opens virtual doors for more fellowship, conversation, and tech education. Founded by philanthropist Don Vaccaro and Rev. Dr. Boise Kimber, the project has donated website assistance to churches like the TrueWorship Tabernacle in Texas, as well as other establishments in Kentucky, Georgia, Connecticut, and Florida.

Communications Advisor Rachel Noerdlinger tells NewsOne that Vaccaro and Rev. Kimber came up with the idea after noticing the large gap in technology in the church community. “I think one thing is trying to bring the older congregation members to speed with next generation technology,” Noerdlinger said. “A lot of the churches are legacy organizations, they’re traditional. It’s more of the [the churches making the leap] to get with the times.”
